    Easy to use, but has capacity issues

    By HeathJ

    Comments about Whirlpool 4.5 Cu. Ft. Top Loading Washer - White:

    I bought this machine about 3 months ago and I'm very happy I did, for the most part. The machine has a cycle for basically any type of wash; whites, sheets, heavy loads, or just a simple rinse and spin, etc. I noticed that it doesn't take as long to fill up as my previous washer with an agitator did. And the clothes seem to be coming out nice and clean every time. There are 3 different slots; one for detergent, one for fabric softener, and one for bleach; which I love. The only thing I do not like about this washer is that I bought a 4.5 cu ft washer, thinking I can load it up to the top with no problem. This isn't the case. And no I don't cram it full of clothes so they don't have any room to tumble, I just loosely lay them in on top of each other. When I fill it up to the top with normal clothes (not bulky items), the spinner always gets uneven and thrown off track and the machine reads "uL". Basically stating that I need to take some weight out in for the machine to spin properly. And in the midst of this, all my clothes are being tangled amoungst each other, some cases possibly being torn. So what I got to be a "larger washer" with more cubic feet in order to do more laundry in fewer cycles, actually turned out to be a waste of space. If I would of known that, I would of just paid less money to buy a smaller cubic foot washer to do the same amount of laundry. But all in all, even though I can only fill the washer half full at a time, the brand is great and I love the quality of my washes.

    This machine is user friendly and does a fantastic job of washing and wringing clothing. It has made my life so much easier. I would recommend this machine to everyone. I have never had a washing machine that I found as easy to use and as efficient as this one.

    I've had this washer for about a month and am very happy with it. It is energy and water efficient, easy to use and has great options without having "too many" choices.

    Solid Performer

    Comments about Whirlpool 4.5 Cu. Ft. Top Loading Washer - White:

    First experience with an HE washer and have only had this unit for a month, but so far so good. Appears to clean well. We've put some really dirty stuff in there and they came out clean. Enough cycles to address any situation, but I did notice that there was no cycle that defaulted to "cold" water. Not a big issue since you can override cycle defaults, but if you use cold all the time, you need to override each time you do a load (minor inconvenience). Would love to have an option to override water level, but as with most HE units, this one is auto-sensing and does not have such an option. Cycle times are reasonable in length, only slightly longer than my previous washer (and shorter than a competitor's which my parent's recently purchased). This is of importance to me as I don't want doing a load of laundry to be an all-day affair. Noise is reasonable, not whisper quiet, but not annoyingly loud as some other reviewers have stated. Overall, I'm very happy with this unit, got a good price, has plenty of features, so it's a good value. I would recommend it based on my experience thus far, but it's only been a month. The biggest test for me will be to see if this machine stands the test of time. I'd much rather have a machine with fewer bells & whistles than one that breaks down!

    Comments about Whirlpool 4.5 Cu. Ft. Top Loading Washer - White:

    We love the large loads this washer can handle, it saves us time, water, electric,.. And with the high speed spin drying time is saved also. Much quieter than our previous machine before it died. I would definitely buy this machine again tomorrow if I had it to do over.
